  • Season finale....already.

    So apparently 7 episodes make a season. I'm disappointed because I'm still trying to figure out whether or not I really like this show. This episode is billed as the season finale. No big twists, no cliff hangers here. Just a bit more character development and clever dialogue. The episode starts with Becky dealing with a student who's pulled the fire alarm. Rumer Willis plays the part of the student, Shawna. After Becky is done talking to her, Shawna promptly pulls the alarm for a second time. In the meantime, Bruce gets to take over as principal because Huffy is sick. He immediately lets the power go to his head and he gives Shawa 6 months of detention. Bruce is fun to watch throughout the episode. He's like Napoleon but not so short. I love his sidekick, Max. He has no lines but he's a funny little boy. As for Becky, she comforts Lisa whose divorce has just been finalized. She makes Lisa a nice dinner on the roof of the school and encourages her to work on herself before dating again. By the next day, Lisa tells Becky she spent the whole night working on herself and now she's ready to date. And much to Becky's dismay, not only does Lisa ask Tim out, but she steals Becky's date idea and has dinner on the roof for Tim. Lisa realizes Becky likes Tim and the competition is on. It was a fun episode to watch but not much of a season finale. I guess just another thing to blame on the writer's strike.moreless

Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions


  • TRIVIA (1)

    • During the first fire alarm scene, Becky is standing in the hallway directing the students toward the exits. In the first shot, there is a tall dark haired boy wearing a white t-shirt with red sleeves walking toward and then past her. As she looks behind her to see Principal Terry running by with his Dick Cheney picture, you see the same boy about half way down the hall coming towards her. Then, as she looks back in her original direction, the same boy is once again walking towards her, but further down the hall than in the first shot.

  • QUOTES (6)

    • Tim: (holding up a copy of Don Quixote) Did you know that it's not pronounced Don Quicks Oat?
      Becky: (acting surprised) Really? You learn something new every day.

    • Becky: Great... it'll be just like Sex and the City. I'll be Dianne and you can be Veronica.
      Lisa: You've never seen Sex and the City, have you?
      Becky: I only get basic cable.

    • Lisa: I thought I was OK. But when I signed those (divorce) papers, I suddenly felt alone... Like, all of a sudden being incredibly attractive and universally well-liked wasn't enough? I mean that's pathetic, right?
      Becky: Nooo.. It's perfectly natural. Lucky for you, you came to the right person.
      Lisa: You came to me.
      Becky: Either way.

    • Bruce: I need you to cover Germain's classes this morning. She's running late.
      Becky: I have sessions with students.
      Bruce: You can hand out condoms tomorrow. News flash... It's not like they're gonna use them. I estimate that 9 out of 10 high school students have herpes or a baby.

    • Becky: Isn't that the same friend that told you that video game scores counted when you applied to college?
      Shawna: Yah.
      Becky: And isn't that the same friend who told you that you wouldn't get pregnant if you showered afterward?
      Shawna: Yah.
      Becky: Do you see what I'm getting at here?
      Shawna: No.

    • Principal Huffy: Some people think this job is easy. It's not. You have to be fair, firm and inpersonal. Here's my secret. I'm dead inside.

  • NOTES (1)


    • Backdraft

      This is a reference to the movie Backdraft which was released in 1991. Kurt Russell and William Baldwin star as brothers, who are both firefighters for the same fire company in Chicago, Illinois. They must put out fires started by a serial arsonist, while coming to terms with their strained relationship.

    • Sex and the City
      Lisa: You've never seen Sex and the City, have you?
      Becky: I only get basic cable.

      Sex and the City was a popular, unedited series on HBO before it was edited and syndicated to TBS, among others.
